, by the way. >> yes. >> it deserves the applause. >> and it was -- i was looking a lot at the history of cbs and nbc, the big two, but abc has started coming on strong and it became the third of the big three. how did abc news did on parity with nbc and cbs? what is the timeframe that that happened? >> abc news to everyone always says it was the fourth that of three. [laughter] for the 60's and 70's. it was a very weak news organization by all accounts. let's be clear. abc does the weakest of the networks as well. if you recall, there were to nbc network and nbc had a spinoff because they had trust concerns. so letter golden sun started building up the entertainment part of abc and to some degree successfully in the 60's and 70's. he concluded the only way to really get to parity with cbs and nbc was to build a great news organization, not so much because he loved news, but because the local stations made most of their money, as they do today, off of their newscast. he needed to improve. so he turned to abc sports, monday night football, while the world's ports and it said, you go over to ne
to hurricane watcher meteorologist david bernard at our cbs miami station, w.f.o.r.-tv. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. we have the latest on hurricane sandy. sandy is continuing to move to the northeast at around 10 miles per hour, 75-mile-an-hour winds. no change in the expected intensity or the track. we're still looking for it to cross the mid atlantic coast line or the northeast coast line as far north as long island sound monday night into tuesday morning. that's when some of the worst weather is going to be. that's when the highest chance for significant winds that could cause power outages are going to begin to occur. >> osgood: meteorologist david bernard. thank you. sandy is turning out to be an october surprise for both presidential campaigns. with election day just over a week away, both mitt romney and president obama are canceling appearances and otherwise trying to steer clear of the storm's path. a magnitude 7.7 earthquake rattled the western coast of canada early this morning. there are no reports of casualties or major damage. a tsunami warning tha
the canned dads in a statistic al tie among likely voters. in terms of the key swing states, that cbs "new york times" quinnipiac poll shows the president up five points in ohio. that's holding steady between fr two weeks ago. if in florida, a statistical tie. similar story in virginia. mitt romney is within two points. the ohio is ahead in both ohio and virginia in early voting. today mitt romney making multiple stops in the state of florida. yesterday he took a break from campaigning, turning a dayton, ohio rally into a relief event for storm victims on the east coast. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be looking for goods even though we've gathered these things as you know, but i know that one of the things i've learned in life is that you make the difference you can and you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the differe
these, cbs saying you got to concede, he said i don't think i lost. the polls are wrong again. when have the polls ever mistakenly said the republican has won? really! i am not worried about the exit polls. >> i thought you meant the ten point spread is in our state? >> i don't remember what you're talking about. [talking over each other] >> in light of yesterday's lorillard humans in the supreme court in university of texas, what do you think is the possibility and probability of ending affirmative-action? >> my law firm brought the case against university of michigan undergrad and law school, center for individual rights. we brought the original case ten years ago and won against the law school and undergrads because of sandra day o'connor who said we need 25 more years of affirmative action. now we have constitutional provisions with expiration dates. there is an interesting book avent tsurprise. liberals try to help how did they cover the failure of public school? affirmative-action. let's deal with the public schools and i suppose i should say, whether or not i always thought was a
election day. the focus is still on critical swing states. polling from cbs news, "the new york times" and quinnipiac shows the president up by five points in ohio. that is unchanged from two weeks ago. in florida, just a single point separates the two candidates. the president had a nine-point lead in september. it's a similar story in virginia where mitt romney has closed the president's lead to within two points. are you really going to slurp your coffee? yes, you are. okay. when it comes to -- >> brutal. >> john heilemann. >> he isn't slurping his coffee. >> i just wondered. you're like my dad. he does that. >> when it comes to early voting, the president's ahead in both ohio and virginia. i tell you what, the economic outlook's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes
document from august. this is breaking about all of this, cbs told is moving this as well. that the security group not called in action. >> we seem to get to the point where everybody is paying attention to the story. a big story from person policy magazine. kind of story to make those inside the beltway to take notice. documents found on the ground of the consulate on octobe october 26, seven weeks after the attack described the letters in which the u.s. ambassador and others in the consulate were asking for additional security because they had seen a police officer who is charged with guarding the compound casing the compound instead. sent letters to the libyan officials, made requests to american officials asking for security. this is a big deal story, because it took -- why in the world would they be able to find these documents on the floor of the consulate. after the f.b.i. has done its investigation. >> bret: now, as you know, we spend a lot of time putting the timelines together, doing the hours. and trying to tell people what happened in order. for five days befor
, oops, didn't come out that way. in new hampshire, well, i won't run them all of these, but cbs harangued them, saying, you conceived, you lost the election. i don't think i lost. they counted the votes, and he was not losing. when have the polls mistakenly said the republican is winning? [laughter] really, i'm not much worried about the exit polls. >> oh, good, i thought you meant the ten point spread was in our favor, but it's in in the 2008 election was in obama's favor? >> i don't remember that exact column. >> i remember them all. >> better than i do apparently. [laughter] >> ann, in light of yesterday's oral arguments of the supreme court, university of texas case. what do you think is the possibility and probability of ending affirmative action in education? >> well, i hope very good. my law firm brought the case gebs the -- against the university of michigan and law school. we brought that original case ten years ago, won against the law school, lost against undergrads because of sandra day o'connor who says we need 25 more years of affirmative action. now we have consti
and has the momentum. today new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs polls has the president up five points in ohio and then they have florida and virginia in a dead heat with the president up by one point in florida and two points in virginia. then you look at the romney mini surge in the nonbattleground states, maybe romney does have some momentum. think minnesota, michigan and pennsylvania. but then you have to look at the campaign body language and it's hard not to con chewed that r romney's campaign is acting as if they believe they are behind at least when it comes to the state of ohio. for starters, the romney campaign likely would not be airing this controversial jeep ad if they believe they were winning. both chrysler and gm are firing back at romney. chrysler ceo said in a statement jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the united states and will con sstitute th backbone of the grand. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. a gm spokesman told the detroit news, quote, we've clearly enter ed some parallel universe during the last few days, no amount of campaign po
election night -- or maybe we should say election morning 12 years ago -- let's go back to cbs news's coverage of the race between george bush and al gore. >> let's point out what the television networks are using a pool of data and exit poll of permission and other ever mission have made some mistakes over the night, the big one meeting in florida, first calling it for al gore and then for george bush and calling it back. television and radio networks are not the only ones who had to take some calls. >> this is one that called it for bush. they came out with a new addition, they called it a nail biter. when it -- it was a hunch. when it happened to us, it was based on technology. it is kind of scary what we are basing this on tonight. >> they may yet be right to enter the case of the chicago tribune, and they were wrong but. it still could be right. they pulled a back. >> a denture fairness to our core, he was probably listening to us. >> he and his people. no doubt about it. florida's electoral votes, look at the map. the reason florida is and why it is because this state remains
have president obama and mitt romney on cbs the other day. the president was expressing his disappointment that he hasn't been able to change the tone. george w. bush ran he was going to change the tone. everyone is always going to change the tone. the question is mitt romney promising by partisanship of it like lucy promising charlie brown she won't pull football? [laughter] >> yes, i think it is. i think that he has to nod to that there is no evidence he would govern in of bipartisan way to read george w. bush that is not elected president in my opinion but did not get a majority of the votes -- [applause] he ran that we as a compassionate conservative and you would have expected him to govern as a moderate and realize he presided over a very deeply divided country and instead he was one of the most radical presidents we've ever had, so i expect the same thing from mitt romney who is actually talked who is espousing more radical right policies than george w. bush ever did. like nixon and ronald reagan in certain ways looks like a moderate in terms of education mitt romney
local so we can make sure that jobs are here that should be here. host: 1 story from cbs news said this had hit romney on china. it is challenging him and accusing him of outsourcing jobs. it rebuts his claims that he would stand up to host: is a volatile spot on him? is he week are in china? guest: the president has been extremely weak on china and the past four years have proven it. as far as outsourcing jobs, the president ever stimulus bonds outsourced thousands of american jobs and money that was borrowed against the american taxpayer was also outsourced. looking at fisker automotive, those jobs went overseas. this president has been a failure when it comes to making sure jobs stay in the united states and protecting us against currency manipulation. host: from iowa, mason city, independent. good morning. caller: there was a caller a few minutes ago from louisiana with a different guest talking about the campaign. basically, he said that they were laundering money coming from foreign countries going to the democrats. how come nobody is talking about the fiscal cliff? there was
to win the grand prize of two out -- $5,000. cb -- c-span's competition is open to students grades 6 through 12. find out more at studentca m.org. >> the u.s. house and senate and the federal government -- host: we are highlighting key battleground states of campaign 2012. today we put a spotlight on iowa. joining us from des moines is a senior political writer with the associated press, mike glover. what is the economy like in the iowa? guest: the economy is probably better than the rest of the country. it's not great, but we have not suffered the depths of the recession that some other parts of the country have. the economy is less of an issue than it is in many other places around. basically because the farm economy is pretty good this year. commodity prices are up as well as land prices. so there's not a lot of economic uncertainty. host: what are the top issues that iowa voters are thinking? guest: it depends on what group you are talking to. on the republican side, the topics they are talking about are the social issues. that's very important. it has driven republican politics
super pacs like abc, nbc, cbs, pbs, npr, cnn, the new york times? the million dollars from the new york times that they spend every year to produce this product and pay its employees is enough, don't you? host: are you calling the media outlets super pacs? caller: definitely, they are political lobbying groups. guest: the first amendment to the constitution as a provision that talks about the press. so there has always been in the rules about financing campaigns an exemption for news organizations. there are no restrictions on what people can write in newspapers or can express on television. they are very careful to separate their editorial opinions and the editorial pages and their own perspectives from the news. that is their profession. it encourages them to be as objective as they can. so everybody is free to judge those messages as they come from the media and there are lots of them in very different forms in this era than there have been in the past. but there's an exemption in the constitution that allows them to spend money that way without any restrictions. host: let's look at
, it's the battle for the state and the electoral votes. these are brand new numbers out from cbs/new york times and quinnipiac. three of the most important battleground states, one is ohio. the president has a five-point advantage for ohio with 18 electoral votes. florida and virginia are also battleground states, basically tied up according to the new numbers from quinnipiac. >> we have heard mitt romney wants to expand the map to michigan, maybe pennsylvania. people saw that as a sign of maybe going on offense, but if the ohio number is really five points or three to five points as we have seen in a number of polls here, it could be that romney needs to find another way to pick up the electoral votes and not get ohio. >> every republican who has won the white house has won ohio. it's tradition, you need it, but there's an avenue for mitt romney to do it without ohio but it is tough. eventually he would have to bring up the score everywhere else in the battleground states or try to expand the map. >> we are also hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yester
at -- by the way rude, did you know i just saw this over the weekend. the cbs poll that showed romney winning by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell
as well as operating -- cbs "newshour" past -- [inaudible] >> "don't ask don't tell," the elimination of the "don't ask don't tell" we are a year into this so i don't want to abstain it but it could not have gone any better than it has gone. i think it has to do first with how we rolled it out, how we briefed it and frankly we underestimated our younger populations and their ability, their acceptability of this issue. in my mind, so far it really could not have gone any better. there are still some things we have to work through but it has gone very well. in terms of our recruiting, i always caveat this because it has a lot to do with our economic and unemployment that the last two years up in the highest quality of recruits the army has said that i can remember. in terms of educational levels and in terms of waivers we have granted him a party recruited 30,000 for next year. which is half of our requirement. it's already done. there are people -- when the economy changes could impact us? c.'s, but right now it is not impacted our recruiting and it is does not impact their quality ope
is not there. >> now, when you see the cbs "new york times" that's a good poll. the nbc "wall street journal," that's a good poll. the des moines register has their own. joe an seltser does that. there is some high quality, a lot of people calling live people but it's very, very little. and that's what plutes the averages and whether it's pollster.com or whether it's real clear politics or talking points memo or nate. nate as really bright guy. but i think you need to be a little more discriminating in terms of what polls you're plugging in because otherwise it's garbage in, garbage out. >> the last question before we go to your questions. given we are in a choose your own adventure environment tell me your instinct. it's a very close election. do you think that the public at large of the losing side, whoever that might be delared to be is going to be prepared to accept losing? >> no. >> no. certainly it's going to feel very different than it did in 2008 where mccain voters certainly wanted their guy to win but also you talk to a lot said boy on election night right you sort of felt a sense
on walter cronkite. >> guest: a wonderful book. [applause] >> host: looking at cbs and nbc but abc came on strong and was 1/3 of the big three. how did abc news get on parity? what is the timeframe? >> abc news was the fourth thought of three. [laughter] it was very weak by all accounts. there were two nbc networks they had to spin off one but they started to build up the entertainment part. he concluded the only way to get to parity was to build a great news organization because the local stations made most of their money. so who created wide world of sports and the modern olympics said spend as much money as you want, which he did. [laughter] he built it up starting 1977 through the '80s by bringing in big stars. david brinkley, diane sawyer , ted koppel, he brought peter from overseas. he had barbara walters already. amazing graphics and was very aggressive. he built it up to a powerhouse. >> what was his personality like? >> guest: he was 18 yes. not in his demeanor. he was on the shy side and totally absent he never returned phone calls of anybody. at night you have a crisis there
, david bender. >> happy halloween everybody. i've got some candy for you! this just in. the cbs quinnipiac and quinnipiac, the most accurate poll two years ago. the most accurate. obama up by one in florida. two in virginia. five in ohio. >> ooh! >> just in. >> i hope that holds. >> that's candy for everybody. it doesn't mean that we stop working. this is before people get to see his andrew shepherd moment of the last three days. >> stephanie: that's right. he is the president -- so take that. thank you. >> happy halloween. hi elvira. >> hi. that's a great treat. thank you. >> stephanie: make sure you keep your bathrobe closed when you answer the door tonight. >> that's a good point. i'm closing it now. >> stephanie: love you. >> love you guys, bye. >> you gave me a great idea with the romney poo bags i have. i'm going to -- you know, you could go around the neighborhood and if people have the sign in their yard, you could put them -- a burning bag of dog poo on the doormat and ring the bell and then they
